A Modern Day Fairy Tale

Faith. Family. Fiction. Fun.

Beyond the Tides by Liz Johnson {Book Review}

**I received a complimentary copy of this book for consideration. All thoughts are my own. 

When Meg Whitaker's father decides to sell the family's lobster-fishing business to her high school nemesis, she sets out to prove she should inherit it instead. Though she's never had any interest in running the small fleet--or even getting on a boat due to her persistent seasickness--she can't stand to see Oliver Ross take over. Not when he ruined her dreams for a science scholarship and an Ivy League education ten years ago.

Oliver isn't proud of what he did back then. Angry and broken by his father walking out on his family, he lashed out at Meg--an innocent bystander. But owning a respected fishing fleet on Prince Edward Island is the opportunity of a lifetime, and he's not about to walk away just because Meg wants him to.

Meg's father has the perfect solution: Oliver and Meg must work the business together, and at the end of the season, he'll decide who gets it. Along the way, they may discover that their stories are more similar than they thought . . . and their dreams aren't what they expected.

Bestselling author Liz Johnson invites you back to Prince Edward Island for a brand-new series about family, forgiveness, and the kind of love that heals all wounds.

Liz Johnson is the author of more than a dozen novels, including A Sparkle of SilverA Glitter of GoldThe Red Door InnWhere Two Hearts Meet, and On Love's Gentle Shore, as well as a New York Times bestselling novella and a handful of short stories. She works in marketing and makes her home in Phoenix, Arizona.

Talk about a way to start off a new series!  Beyond the Tides is the first book in Liz Johnson's new Prince Edward Island Shores series and it has me excited to see what it going to happen next. 

This is a true enemies to romance story... and I must admit that when the story began I didn't think I was going to like Meg's character one bit. This girl certainly knew how to hold on to a grudge, and if we're being honest, came off as a little bit petty in the beginning. Still, the more I read, the more I understood her character and where she was coming from... I definitely changed my mind in the end. It was hard not to when the chemistry between Meg and Oliver just leaped off the pages... I absolutely could not get enough of it. There was just a hint of mystery, and I enjoyed some of the twists at the end that I only partially saw coming. The next story in the series was also hinted at just enough to keep me wondering what had happened and ready to pick up the next book.

Overall, a really good romance and one that I really enjoyed. I cannot wait to see more from this series. 



  1. I would love to visit Prince Edward Island someday. In the meantime, this sounds like a great read to transport me there.

  2. Looks like an interesting book.
    Thanks for the review.
